The Crystalline Crushblat is a cave-dwelling relative to the Calcified Crushblat. It mostly sits in an idle position, only moving when it senses Pikmin or leaders nearby. When it does, it will slowly walk over to them and attempt to crush them with its crystalline body. Because of its particularly slow movement with its exoskeleton on, the Crystalline Crushblat is a rather easy foe to kill. It can be defeated by breaking its outer shell with Rock Pikmin or a similar Pikmin and then using any Pikmin type to damage its exposed body. The only danger is approaching it while its shell is on, as this allows it to crush leaders and Pikmin, although it does even this slowly.
